The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) published the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) in the Federal Register on Thursday, June 3, 2010. The agency seeks public comment on how to best rate and evaluate significant transit infrastructure projects that are seeking federal funding. The agency is looking for ways to measure cost-effectiveness, economic development, land use and environmental impacts in the evaluation process. This process will lead to improved changes in the way major transit project proposals are selected to receive federal assistance in FTA's New Starts and Small Starts programs.
